CoastCon 41 Presents Our Charity Partner:

Mississippi Centers for Autism and Related Developmental Disabilities
This year Coastcon will collaborate with the Mississippi Centers for Autism and Related Developmental Disabilities (MCARDD), an organization that has been serving the Coast since 2005. All money raised at our annual auction will be donated to MCARDD to help them provide services to children with autism and related disorders.

The center has a staff dedicated to providing the best available treatment and services to anyone impacted by ASD. MCARDD is committed to improving the way children are identified, assessed, and diagnosed and providing advanced tools for treating those with Autism Spectrum Disorder. In this vision for Mississippians impacted by autism, early intervention is a key focus in treatment offered by MCARDD. Furthermore, there is a passion and drive to increase awareness of ASD for physicians, educators, health care providers, families, and friends.

More information about MCARDD and the services they provide is available on their website: http://mscentersforautism.org

We are always accepting items for the charity auction! Please contact our charity liaison, Julie Schiavo at charity@coastcon.org if you would like to donate.
